Sir James Parker

???? - 1852

Claimant or beneficiary


Son and co-heir of Charles Stewart Parker senior (q.v.) and Margaret Rainy. He has an entry in the ODNB as 'judge' that gives no background on the sources of his father's wealth.

  1. 'James Parker' appeared as trustee with Charles Stewart Parker (q.v.) for a claim for seven enslaved people in British Guiana on behalf of the children of Silvia Lockett (q.v.) carrying the surname of George Rainy (q.v.), another partner in the merchant firm of Charles Stewart Parker senior and Charles Stewart Parker. This suggests that the co-awardee was James Parker (from 1851 Sir James Parker), the brother of Charles Stewart Parker and the son of Charles Stewart Parker senior and Margaret Rainy.


Agnew, Sinéad. "Parker, Sir James (1803–1852), judge." Oxford Dictionary of National Biography. 23 Sep. 2004; Accessed 17 Jan. 2020.; British Guiana No. 852. 'James Parker' also appears as the awardee in two other claims in British Guiana, Nos. 1081 and 1848, for 7 and 6 enslaved people respectively; it is not clear whether these were also connected with Sir James Parker.
